Scheduling Coordinator

Diane was introduced to Dr. Kawata’s wonderful office when her children began treatment with him. She was very impressed with the quality of the treatment and the overall experience at the office. This inspired her to become a part of his orthodontic team, and she has now been part of the practice for more than thirteen years. Diane is cheerful and welcoming at our front desk, and is conscientious in assisting patients with their appointment needs. “I love working for Dr. Kawata! The atmosphere here is always upbeat and positive.”
